Christmas is Coming!

It's the first week of December. Christmas is coming! Beware of junk like this little battery operated waste of space I found at a department store recently:

Buying gifts for your friends, family, and loved ones is great, don't get me wrong. But instead of buying them that sweater that they'll only wear when you come to visit or that exercise video their never going to use (not to mention how insulting that would be), try to do something a little more thoughtful this year. What my family is doing this year is getting a bunch of money together to help people in third world countries. We are doing this through an organization called Gospel for Asia Through this we will donate money so a family can receive farm animals for eggs, milk, and/or meat. As far as gifts for each other, we've decided to keep it simple and not spend much on each other because there are so many out there who need so much.

There are other organizations out there that are doing similar things. One of my favorites is Advent Conspiracy. Here are two videos, I'll put a link to the site below:

Also, click here to see the post I wrote for charity:water

Blood:Water mission is also a great outreach started by members of the band Jars of Clay.

Also, be sure to check out how you can get involved in helping others in your local community as well.

So have a stress-free holiday and don't trample anyone to get your kid the one thing they really want. Believe me, they'll still love you if you don't.

And try not to get trampled.

Merry Christmas.
